Marinate cubes in Italian Dressing for a minimum of 1 hr.

Cut Bacon slices in half.

Cook Bacon slices in microwave for 2 minutes.

Remove skewers from water and apply a light film of Olive oil on skewers.

Wrap marinated cubes in Bacon placing on the skewer until skewer is full.

8 slices bacon, chopped

2 small onion, chopped fine

2 carrot, chopped fine

2 celery rib, chopped fine

4 tablespoon unsalted butter

4 teaspoons all purpose flour

1-teaspoon paprika

16 ounces bottled clam juice

2 cups water

1 can, 12 oz. carnation canned milk.

2 russet (baking) potatoes (about 1 pound)

1 1/2 pounds firm white fish fillet such as walleye, halibut or cod,

skin discarded and flesh cut into 1inch pieces

4 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves


To make the fish chowder:


In a heavy saucepan cook bacon over moderate heat, stirring, until crisp and transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Pour off fat and in pan cook onion, carrot, and celery in butter over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened. (may have to add a little water to keep from sticking)


Sprinkle flour over mixture and cook, stirring, 3 minutes. Stir in paprika and cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add clam juice, water, and canned milk and bring to a slow boil, stirring occasionally. (Add canned milk last when mixture is cooled down)


While mixture is coming to a boil, peel potato and cut into 1/4inch dice. Add potato to mixture and simmer chowder, uncovered until potatoes are close to done. Stir in fish and simmer until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley, bacon, and salt and pepper. (I like to use red pepper) It seems to be better if fixed and allowed to set for a few hours, then reheat and eat.


Herbed oyster crackers


1 10 oz bag, soup and oyster crackers

1/3-cup canola oil

1 tablespoon, dill wed

1 t spoon, garlic salt

Combine in a large 1-gallon zip lock bag, shake or stir until crackers are coated.


Yield: 4 servings


Notes: If you are afraid of the grease in the bacon, the chowder is almost as good without it.



Spray glass pan with pam,

line with ½” fillet’s,

make a crab meat stuffing (to taste)

add stuffing to pan about ¾” thick.

Add another layer of fish about ½”,

I like to use the thicker fillets split and butter flied.

Brush the top with oil. Salt and pepper to taste.

Bake until a fork will just slide through.

Make a cheese sauce smooth not to thin,

Cut fish into serving size portions and cover with the cheese sauce, serve with veggi

This is a great for large groups and your bigger fish are better than the smaller ones.

Bigger fish hold the texture better and stay nice and flakey.

Thanks to Tim and Nancy of this recipe.



Add 1/3rd stick of butter to pan along with a couple tablespoons light olive oil.

The olive oil keeps the butter from burning and turning brown.

Take the zippered cut up pieces of walleye and lightly season the fillets with dill.

Put a light amount of garlic powder and cayenne pepper in the butter/oil and then add the seasoned fish.


Fry on both sides until slightly brown (easier with well drained fish).

Thanks to Ken and Carol for this recipe.

Baked Walleye in wine.  (good flavor and no fishy taste)


6 (8-ounce) walleye fillets
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 pound buttery, flaky crackers, finely crushed
1/2 pound melted butter
1/2 cup white wine


Marinate fish in milk, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, olive oil, and paprika for 2 hours (the longer the better).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Remove from marinade and dip each fillet into cracker crumbs. Cover all surfaces well. Place fillets in buttered baking pan. Space apart where fillets are not touching each other. Drizzle with melted butter.

Pour white wine into pan, just enough to bring wine up onto the sides of the fillets, being sure not to drizzle directly onto fish. Bake until fillets are flaky, approximately 10 minutes. Do not overcook. Place under broiler for a few minutes to finish and give color.
